I've been looking for returnships in Chicago, but there are literally no returnships available here right now. As I was perusing jobs on websites, I happened to see a job posting for an Entry Level Software Engineer – No Experience Required – Tech Apprenticeships, in my city. My background is in programming and IT (20+ years experience), but I have an 8 year gap in my resume.
Would a hiring manager at a company consider someone like me for a position like this? I would *love* to get into software engineering, but don't want to apply if my application will get tossed in the trash. I know they're probably looking for younger candidates, but would they consider someone who is looking to re-launch their career?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks very much!
